Aggressive behaviour: posters to display in schools

Reassuring visitors that their concerns will be heard

Moorlands Primary School in Huddersfield includes a poster in their Violent and Abusive Behaviour policy which welcomes visitors to the school and sets their behaviour expectations for parents. 

The poster, which appears on page 15, welcomes visitors to the school. It continues:

If you have concerns we will always listen to them and seek to address them.

Please be aware, however, that abusive, threatening or violent behaviour will not be tolerated in this school.

Visitors behaving in this way are likely to be removed from the premises and prosecuted.

Emphasising that a school is a zero tolerance zone
